Anticipated development in the key performance indicators of the Audi Group (2021 fiscal year)

The Audi Group is now cautiously optimistic about the rest of the year, but it is hardly possible to estimate the impact of the second wave of the corona pandemic reliably. Subject to this development, Audi is currently anticipating the following key performance indicators for the 2021 fiscal year:

Key performance indicators Forecast 2021
Deliveries to customers of the Audi brand significantly above prior-year level
Revenue significantly above prior-year level
Operating return on sales between 7 and 9 percent
Return on investment (ROI) between 12 and 15 percent
Net cash flow between EUR 3.5 and 4.5 billion
Research and development ratio within the strategic target corridor of 6 to 7 percent
Ratio of capex within the strategic target corridor of 4 to 5 percent

Key performance indicators of the Audi Group in a nutshell

The basis for the management of the Audi Group is a value-oriented corporate management approach in combination with the following key performance indicators, which are important drivers of our corporate development and support the goals of our strategy.

Deliveries to customers of the Audi brand
Auslieferungen an Kunden

The non-financial indicator of deliveries to customers reflects the number of new vehicles of the Audi brand handed over to customers. This performance indicator reflects demand from customers for our products and reveals our competitive and image position in the various markets worldwide. Strong demand for our products has a major impact on production, and consequently also on the capacity utilization of our sites and the deployment of our workforce. In addition, a continuing high level of vehicle deliveries reflects high customer satisfaction. 

Revenue
Umsatzerlöse

The financial key performance indicators include Audi Group revenue, which is a financial reflection of our market success. 

Operating result/operating return on sales
Operative Umsatzrendite

Another key performance indicator is the operating result of the Audi Group. This key figure represents the economic performance of our core business as well as the economic performance of our fundamental operational activity, and is defined as follows:

 

Revenue

– Cost of goods sold

– Distribution costs

– Administrative expenses

+ Other operating income

– Other operating expenses

= Operating result

 

Our financial key performance indicators also include the operating return on sales of the Audi Group:

Operating return on sales = Operating result  / Revenue 

Return on investment (ROI)
Return on Investment

A further key performance indicator is return on investment (ROI). This reflects how effective our business activities are, by considering the return achieved on the capital employed over a given period. Return on investment already takes account of CO₂ compliance measures and can therefore also be understood as return on investment after CO₂.

Return on investment (ROI) = Operating profit after tax / Average invested assets 

Net cash flow
Netto-Cashflow

Net cash flow, which serves as a benchmark of the Audi Group’s level of self-financing, is calculated as follows:

 

Cash flow from operating activities

– Investing activities attributable to operating activities

= Net cash flow

Research and development ratio
Forschungs- und Entwicklungskostenquote

The research and development ratio expresses Audi’s innovative strength and also ensures that it maintains competitive cost structures.

 

Research and development ratio = Research and development activities / Revenue

Ratio of capex
Sachinvestitionen

The ratio of capex is another indicator of the Audi Group’s competitiveness.

 

Ratio of capex = Capex according to the cash flow statement / Revenue

 

Capex includes investments in property, plant and equipment, investment property and other intangible assets according to the cash flow statement. Here, capital investment in essence comprises financial resources for modernizing and expanding our range of products and services, for optimizing our capacities and for improving the Audi Group’s production processes. Investment decisions are requested by the specialist areas, then scrutinized and prioritized by Investment Controlling and the “Investment Group” corporate committee. Major decisions affecting investment policy are also approved by the Company’s Supervisory Board.
